What genus does this bug from Sulawesi fall into?

Just back from a botanical expedition to Sulawesi. At about 1300 m altitude, we came across this insect. At first glance, it looked like a colourful cicada, but closer examination showed that it is some type of Fulgorid. Is it a Scamandra or Kalidasa? Whatever the case, the local tribesman had never seen one before in all his life in the forest, so I suspect it is a new taxon.
